    I have to declare an interest as I know the owner. That said I am being as honest as possible. The Guesthouse is slightly out of the centre but is still only 400 yards from the night market and a short walk to the riverside. On a map look for the local Governors office and the GH is just opposite.

    Should you be a light sleeper I suggest you get a room at the back as there is some road noise. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and the little pho shop two doors down stays open late and sells cold beer.

    The GH itself is well built and nicely finished the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are a good size with quality fittings and excellent showers with plenty of hot water and a good pressure. he airconditioning is effective and modern so fairly quiet. Flat screen TV on the wall has more than 40 channels inc BBC world and CNN. I like the fact that they have bedside lights so that you do not have to get up to turn the lights out!

    Breakfast iserved in the lobby nd is the usual Lao fare. Fried Eggs or Omlette Bread or Croissant butter and Jam. Plate of fruit and tea or coffee. The staff are helpful and attentive although some do not have much English.

    Here in Vientiane it has been mostly dry during the day, although we discovered yesterday that the guesthouse we're staying in takes an English language daily paper, so have been reading about floods in both the north and south of Laos, as well as elsewhere in Asia. It's been a treat to read the first English language paper that we've seen on our travels. One thing I miss about not getting to India is the newspapers. On our first evening there was a spectacular lightning storm. ...

    After the beautiful Lang Prabang, Vientiane was a bit of a disappointment, it was just a large city with not too much to do.

    In the hostel that I stayed in on the first night, just as I was falling asleep I noticed a bug crawling in my bed- bed bugs! I quickly changed beds and checked out early the next morning. Upon telling the owner he simply shrugged and said I ...

    ... city I’m in now which is Vientienne, which is the capital of Laos. After so many days of being on the river and in the laid back towns of Laos, this is truly a culture shock! Tonight I had the favorite dessert in this part of the world---coconut sweetened sticky rice with mango. Mangos are everywhere…mango shakes on a hot day? Delicious!

    Vientienne is a busy city with a gorgeous presidential palace and a monument to ...

    ... will take many, many years.

    Vientiane is a sleepy, relaxed capital city that is a far cry from its more modern cousin Bangkok. Just comparing the fleet of cars on the road in both countries is very telling. But even simple, pleasant, relaxed, unassuming Vientiane shows more overt signs of prosperity and development than its fellow capital city, Rangoon. Judging by how few pictures we took in Vientiane we must have fallen under its sleepy spell.

    ... by the current military powers in charge. Hopefully things resolve themselves, but sadly there seems to be conflict in so many countries right now, it’s hard to imagine the world without some type of horrendous conflict going on, we’ve all just got so used to it, and it’s become the norm, sadly.

    Travelling through Laos has been a different experience. Not a bad one but the word we are using frequently is underwhelming. Sure, Laos is pretty, the countryside ...
